New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2018


GERM 82.07 On Literary Adaptations - How to become a Transformer

Bad books make good movies? This is the question in today’s Germany more than ever. Transforming bestsellers into films, series, graphic novels and radio plays has become the latest trend. This course deals with this relatively new phenomenon. Not only will we talk about what sets one media apart from the other; the works by Wolfgang Borchert, Günter Grass, Christine Nöstlinger, Marcel Beyer, W.G. Sebald, Timur Vermes and Volker Kutscher all deal with the Third Reich: But can visuals do the same as texts here? And what about the change of the concept of “German guilt” in the past 75 years? Taught in German.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:LIT; WCult:W

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
